Twins place Casey Fien on DL, promote Michael Tonkin
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(4/30/15) The hope of the Twins that key reliever Casey Fien could avoid a stint on the disabled list has been dashed, FoxSportsNorth is reporting. The right-hander has been placed on the 15-day DL with a shoulder injury sustained during his ninth-inning appearance Wednesday against Detroit.
Fien has had two poor performances since his three scoreless, hitless appearances to start the season. His ERA catapulted from 1.93 to 4.35 when he allowed three runs on five hits to the Tigers.
His replacement is fellow righty Michael Tonkin, who has been promoted from Triple-A Rochester. Tonkin pitched in 25 games for Minnesota a year ago and had yielded just two earned runs with 10 strikeouts in 7 1/3 innings at the Triple-A level in 2015.
Twins send down Michael Tonkin
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(3/20/15) The Twins options pitcher Michael Tonkin to Rochester after he gave up a run in one inning on Friday.
Tonkin had a 6.75 ERA for the Twins this spring.
"He needs to become more efficient with his secondary pitches," manager Paul Molitor said, per MLB.com's Rhett Bollinger. "It seems to me he gets into trouble because people are looking for that fastball pretty much. They're going to get one at some point, so that secondary pitch has to get better to not just get ahead but to finish. He's got enough life on his fastball, but it gets a little predictable at times."
Twins' Michael Tonkin hoping to catch on with the club
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(3/5/15) Twins pitcher Michael Tonkin is hoping to break camp on the 25-man roster, according to MLB.com.
Tonkin has been up and down the past two seasons, but is competing for a bullpen spot this spring. He has one option year left on his contract, but he's hoping he can break camp with the major-league club.
"It would be huge," Tonkin said. "It's a pretty important year for me. Just the business side of it, having just one option left. It's important to show them I can be a big leaguer. I feel like I'm ready."
Tonkin, 25, posted a 4.74 ERA over 19 innings last season.
